My Review Of "Live-Evil"
19 November 2015 | by ASouthernHorrorFanSee all my reviews

The story is creative, well thought out, and offers the chance at a very fun, and thrilling night of Halloween hell-raising mayhem. The cinematography gives the right atmosphere and the cast are fully committed to their characters, well most are anyway. There are a few characters that seem almost forced into the story. Anyway, I did enjoy the concept of evil unleashed on the town on Halloween night, and the fact that we only know as much about what is happening as the characters do. It kept "Live-Evil" somewhat intriguing.

The special effects are quite frustrating. The film is heavily dependent on CGI for about 95 percent of the movie. It was pretty cheap, even for a low-budget horror. The quality falls somewhere between Asylum films and Syfy Channel. The cool thing, which does seem to focus on practical effects, is the use of almost Eddie (Iron Maiden) styled zombie monsters. They are the most interesting thing happening in "Live-Evil". The film's musical score and effects are a dud and offer nothing to the film.

Overall " Live-Evil " is more disappointing than entertaining. The horror never becomes thrilling, the comedy falls flat, and the plot is way overwritten with too much of everything. I did like the art-house style starting out with a black-n-white story only splashed with surreal moments of color, then switching to a all color film for the last half. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to make anymore connection with what is happening on screen than the CGI bullets hitting the zombies. "Live-Evil" is a strange movie with a lot happening, but it doesn't seem to understand that about itself. Watch with caution and low expectations.
